In a featherweight prelim bout at Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney, Miranda (17-6 MMA, 1-1 UFC) took down Young (13-8 MMA, 0-4 UFC), took the back, and squeezed until unconsciousness came.
Young, who missed weight by 3.8 pounds at Friday’s weigh-ins, gave his best effort not to tap, as he bucked his limbs in a last-ditch effort to somehow wiggle away. It was unsuccessful as he picked up his fourth-straight loss.
Miranda picks up his first UFC win after an unsuccessful short-notice promotional debut vs. Blake Bilder, which he lost by unanimous decision in February.
